Another Fun Day...

Today was the best day ever! We started our day early with a private meet and greet with Mickey and Minnie as well as Goofy, Pluto and even Princess Belle. We then headed off to Disney Hollywood Studio’s where we started off with the Playhouse Disney live show where we saw all of our favorite friends including Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny and Tiger and Poo. This was a big hit with Gavin, which was topped off with another meet and greet with all his favorites!

Other highlights of the day included the Toy Story ride, where Gavin go on, Ariel’s live show, Muppets 3D show and the Block Party Parade. Disney is amazing when it comes to Make-A-Wish children – as soon as they see his button, they stop everything and make sure both the kids feel special. There is no waiting for anything. No wait for rides and no wait to see our favorite characters!

We are so grateful for this opportunity – it really is simply amazing, really touches our hearts! Tomorrow we plan to spend the day at the Magic Kingdom, which we attempted on Monday but got rained out.

Oh, I forgot to mention they are calling for snow here in Florida – well at least here in the Give Kids the World Village. Tonight is actually Christmas and I head rumors that Santa will be stopping in!

I am so glad to hear of the royal treatment you're receiving! When my grandmother passed away Make A Wish was who she requested people donate to in her honor, so it gives me a personal glimpse at what they really do. Debbie

Karen,

I'm SO happy for you guys. Gavin looks like he is having a great time. It must feel so good to be doing something so normal as taking a vacation to Disney World. I'm smiling wider and wider each day as I check in to see what your sweet babies got to do that day. Can't wait to see pictures of them with Santa! So blessed for you. Sincerely, Trish Adams
